PARIS, Tenn. - The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating two motorcycle wrecks and one car wreck - all in Henry County Saturday morning.

All three wrecks happened on Highway 69 North in Paris around 9 a.m.

According to THP, the female driver fell asleep at the wheel, and ran into a tree.

Officials said one of the motocycle riders took a sharp left and ran off the road and into a ditch.

The motorcyclist was airlifted to Vanderbuilt Hospital, and is now in stable condition.

His family members said he broke his collar bone, and suffered a brain injury.

THP is reminding drivers to wear their seatbelts, and a helmet if on a motorcycle. Troopers said they both can save your life, like they did for these two motorists.
